Par for the course.

Rolling Stone is a shit magazine all-around, people. Surely I canot be the only one who isn’t the least bit surprised by their latest antic. They’re a bunch of raging leftists who try to portray themselves as edgy. I would almost have been surprised if they didn’t put a terrorist on the cover, let alone attempt to absolve the kid of any personal responsibility for his actions.

It’s as if, with apologies to Jonah Goldberg, “suddenly, all of these people and groups are stunned to discover that Rolling Stone is…Rolling Stone.”
